Once again I have been horrible about updating and posting, so I have a lot of catching up to do. The girls are doing great. There is still a lot of pushing going on, but now Lillian has decided to start dragging Claire around by the hair. I have no idea what to do other then constant time outs. Lillian knows when she is in trouble because she takes off running and tries to hide.
For time outs, we take away any toy she might be playing with, even take off necklaces and bracelets. She has to sit with her back against the wall for a set amount of time. When her time is up we talk about what she did wrong and why it was not nice. She then has to walk over to Claire, tell her sorry and give her a soft touch. They will play happily for a few minutes and then Lillian usually pulls Claire's hair again for no reason at all.
On a brighter note, when they are getting along, they have so much fun together and they are such giggle machines. They have recently started to flip their chairs over again to climb and slide down them. They haven't done this for a good chunk of the winter, but it is back.
courage for the week 8.20.17
